Julie is amazing!! I have always wanted a GSP and Julie not only listened to what I was looking for, but she went above and beyond to locate the right puppy for my life style. Julie was very friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and extremely passionate about this breed. She was quick to respond to all my questions and concerns and never hesitated to remind me that she was here to help and loves to communicate!! I felt like part of a family. I was absolutely blown away by her customer service and friendly demeanor. This is my first time locating a GSP pup and I will never go to anyone else! She made this process streamline and easy. I am very excited for this new adventure at having my very own GSP. Thank you Julie for all you do and for the care you take in matching the right dog to the right owner. Your love for this breed shows and thanks for caring.

Julie is absolutely wonderful! I reached out to her in search of my very first GSP pup and within two days she had connected me with a breeder. She helped me through the entire process and led me to someone she trusted. Thanks to her I will be bringing my first GSP home June 10th and I could not be more excited. If you need help finding your next dog I highly recommend you at least reach out to Julie as she would be more than happy to chat and point you in the right direction. Thanks for everything Julie. You are a Rockstar!

When I first talked to Julie on the phone a little over 2 years ago, I knew she was the right person to help us find our new German Shorthaired Pointer. During our phone conversations, Julie explained the testing all of her dogs go through and details about the pedigrees. We knew we'd get an outstanding pup! Here I am, 2 years later, bursting with nothing but positive things to say about Upland Hills Kennel. The male we purchased is a phenomenal family dog with a great temperament, loves to go on hikes with us, has a great nose for birds, and is very well structured. We love him so much that we just bought our second pup from Upland Hills Kennel. The moment we decided it was time for a second GSP, I knew I could rely on Julie for guidance. She is also great with communication by being honest and answering all the questions we have. We feel truly blessed to have found such a marvelous breeder. I happily recommend Upland Hills Kennel to everyone for their values, integrity, and high standards for German Shorthaired Pointers.

Julie and brad are probably the most honest breeders I could have asked for! I have bought 3 dogs from her and will continue to use there years of experience and knowledge on GSPs and Labs. I will not go anywhere else for my labs or gsps. Currently we are about to get a 4th dog from there amazing breeding! Julie has guided us ever step of the way providing us with vet info and bloodline info that is unmatched. She knows these dogs thru and thru. I am excited with the relationship we have built and will continue to work together on every aspect of my kennel. They are the definition of integrity. They stand behind there dogs, and will do anything for there customers!

Julie and Brad are some of the kindest people on earth. We were looking for a puppy when our lab spaniel started to get older. Julie and Brad were very accommodating when it came to coordinating meeting up with them. As soon as we met them it was clear that they live and breath care for these dogs. They are invested in great heathy happy GSPs and owners. Selling us a dog wasn’t at all their top priority. They were clearly looking to find a good fit for this puppy first and foremost. Even after getting our dog, Julie remains supportive and helpful. She’s an amazing resource. Great people and great dogs. Upland is world class.

Julie was aboslutely amazing!
She was always availible to answer any questions we had, and was with us every step of the way with Clover.
We were amazed by how knowledgeable Julie was about GSPs and how much she loves her dogs, along with getting to know each indivdual pup in the litter to help us pick the perfect one!
He truly is the perfect puppy, with a little something for everyone!
He is high energy for my dad, extremely intelligent and easy to train for me (because i love dog traning) , and a snuggly sweetheart for my mom who loves to lay down on the couch and read...
a book with clover on her chest!
When we went to pick Clover up he was in amazing health and was very well cared for!
Since we brought him home he has been nothing but a delight and is unbelievably affectionate and well tempered.
We have all been enjoying the hilarious puppy antics and watching him grow so quicly.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Julie to anyone who is looking for an extremely well tempered, well bred, and intelligent GSP.

Julie and Brad are our dear friends, I did not know them before Shorthairs, we became friends over the phone and then their kennel got our dog Desert Point's Rob. Rob is a truly once in a life time dog, a true versatile hunting dog with hours of wild bird hunting. He has pointed a hell of a lot of these wild desert Gambel Quail. He is also great with dove, ducks, rabbits etc. He is the real deal. This past Summer I and a lot of our dogs went for a 2 month visit to Sequim Wa. where we really got to know Julie and Upland Hills Kennel. We were treated better than family. Julie does most of the running of the kennel and Brad supports her like the way wonderful husbands do. She does everything first class and has only the best of dogs. She is a master of networking and has a support system of friends, kennels, trainers, vets that is truly remarkable. I cannot say enough kind remarks, she is that once in a lifetime friend and person. You will not recreate doing business with her, and you like I will walk away with a new friend.

3 months ago, our beloved 8 yr old GSP passed away after being struck by car. Indy was our first GSP from Upland Kennels. He was an amazing exercise partner and family companion. When he passed away, I contacted Julie to share the sad news. Julie informed me that Indy's sister (Angel) was having a litter, and after a couple weeks, we decided to welcome our second Upland Hills GSP into our family. Julie selected a pup that she believed would be a great fit with our active lifestyle. I met "JJ" when he was 7 weeks old, brought him home, and since, he has revived the loving spirit that Indy started many years ago. Julie and Upland Hills Kennel is more than just a GSP breeder. Through her well loved dogs, she has become a part of our family, and we have become a part of hers. Thank you for raising such great GSP dogs!

We adore Julie Norman and the tender love and care she puts into her litters. Julie was always available for questions and was responsive to texts/phone calls. She sent me pictures of our puppy as he grew older of which we will cherish. Julie drove three hours to the airport to send us our puppy and he came with handmade toys, a puppy book full of information and a personality that we have fell in love with. Our family has had four dogs over the years, and the puppy we received from Julie has been hands down the best dog that we have owned. He is so handsome, so sweet and super trainable and we just adore him. Thank you Julie for all your hard work and for our new pup! Your efforts do not go unnoticed!
